Little Green Apples

 The Little Green Apple Hop was, for me, a win, win. First, I always think participating in these monthly hops are a wonderful creative use of those little grey cells and this hop happily coincided with me getting the embroidery module for my Bernina 570. (A wonderful if slightly late, Birthday gift.

This week I am attending an Embroidery Retreat.  I needed to know that I could take this machine and actively participate in the fun.

I started to test my abilities with this machine doing some basics.  I did a FSL Easter Basket and a Redwork Christmas embroidery before it dawned on me that I could do some tests using Little Green Apples.  

                                So here we have an appliqued Green Apple with it's buddies

And now I can go Apple Pickin

I forgot to take a pic of this sweet pin cushion  before turning it into something useful.

I was still trying to figure out what to do with this piece

When in doubt, a mug rug.

But my most fun project for this hop would be

This Green Apple Charger Mat.

One of the gals in one of my crafting groups had made a couple of these with embroidered  flowers.  So I thought I should give it a try using Green Apples. Success.

 She found the mats at Hobby Lobby,  I found mine at Target. Both stores were selling them for $2 in  multi colors. 

I hope you enjoyed your visit here and your visits to all of the other stops along the way and the ones yet to come.  Below is a full list of the participants for your viewing pleasure.
